Just noticed a lack of country music threads here, and too much about heavy metal.
So to all you country haters out there, i think this guy is talking to you.

I've been meaning to get into some classic country. Where should I start?

Also, I've been listening to a lot of Uncle Tupelo lately, and they're fucking awesome.

Cootie posted some great ones, Conway always had a special way with putting things into melody. Johnny Cash is one of my personal favorites, and a great place to start.

One of my favorite classic country artists is Buck Owens.

I heard his name mentioned in a Creedence Clearwater Revival song and looked up him afterwards, he turned out to be really good IMO.

I honestly cannot think of any song that has put me off country any more than that did, and i've listened to quite a lot of country. I just can't stand it, to be honest, but I thought i'd check out this thread, see what was going on. I'm not trolling, I admit freely that country music has a lot of merits, but it's just not a style I can ejoy.

"The most wretched people in the world are those who tell you they like every kind of music "except country." People who say this are boorish and pretentious at the same time. All it means is that they've managed to figure out the most rudimentary rule of pop sociology; they know that hipsters gauge the coolness of others by their espoused taste in sound, and they know that hipsters hate modern country music. And they hate it because it speaks to normal people in a tangible, rational manner. Hipsters hate it because they hate Midwesterners, and they hate Southerners, and they hate people with real jobs." - Chuck Klosterman

How could I be so foolish as to forget the master of country that is George Jones? Just look him up on YouTube and enjoy yourself. I always liked that old-timey country music due to my grandpa always listening to it when I was around him as a kid.

I play in a psychobilly band.

thanks for catching up.

Also, check out:

Jocephus and the George Jonestown Massacre
Hank Williams III

What people hate isn't "country." People love bluegrass, for example. What people hate is the "Nashville sound" where you take classic country and have a band of failed blues and rock musicians play it with a disco beat.

Nashville's response to the burgeoning rock and roll style and all the styles that derive from it was to increase their production value and attempt to mimic it, instead of playing to their own strengths.

Country musicians are supposed to be humble and down to earth. They're expected to hone their craft in the "woodshed" far away from everyone else where there is nothing else to do BUT play music. They're supposed to be funny, and grateful to their fans for their new lifestyle.

As opposed to a "rockstar" who is just a spoiled asshole.

However, the nashville sound was about the development of a "Country Star" attitude, which sucked so much monumental balls that it drove an entire generation of southerners to make the exact OPPOSITE style of music.

Ever hear of Pantera? Yeah. The phrase was "Cowboys from Hell." Cowboys. Because they were all rednecks from Texas. Superjoint Ritual, the band that was formed after the death of Dimebag, had Hank III on bass.

Why is bluegrass so fast? Because it's the same mentality as black metal.

As a Memphis musician, who competes with Nashville and "nashville sound" guys all the time, and grew up in a bluegrass family band, I deal with these issues all the time, so they're really "hot-button" for me.


My band Sin City ScoundrelsOur song Vixen of Doom
HATE.
Because 2,000 years of "For God so loved the world" doesn't trump 1.2 million years of "Survival of the Fittest."

Personally, I think that country music depends on the song. Some are epic, but some suck.

Please direct yourself out of this thread and go back to listening to a bunch douchebags scream into their microphones.

On topic, I love Country. Its quite sad really that most kids in this generation love rap/pop and always have to blurt out "DAAWMMN DOODE, COUNTRY IS GAY".

I love country. The best song that I've heard that explains my love perfectly would probably be Song's About Me, by Trace Adkins. See I really like all the kinds of country, including the "Nashville Sound." I can get into just about all of it, except for the emergence of these new female country singers, your Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift type singers. But if we're going for the old stuff you guy's passed up a few that are some of my personal favorites.

The Yellow Rose of Texas, By Willie Nelson
The Gambler, By Kenny Rogers
The Legend of Wooley Swamp, by Charlie Daniels Band
A Country Boy Can Survive, by Hank Williams Jr.
Whiskey River, by Willie Nelson

Reminds me of the epic Battle of New Orleans song! I was subjected to this song years before any american history lessons!

Gordon Lightfoot - Sundown has a lot of great classic music like the still popular If You Could Read My Mind or The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

Well, my uncle always liked country music, it´s not my favourite kind of music, but it´s decent enough to listen to it.

It'll always be Pirate Metal fer me. YAAARGH!

But I actually do like a fair bit of Country Music - just nothing Australian. Hate the shit we produce - but the likes of Johnny Cash, always easy to get into and enjoy. Going to be taking a fair bit of the recommendations in this thread.
